This set of 60 daily cards teaches about one person each day who has contributed to history. From Frederick Douglass to Madam C.J. Walker to Jesse Owens to Nelson Mandela to Serena Williams to 55 others in between.
Each card contains their name, picture, and years of life on the front. On the back is a detailed summary of what they were known for and a few facts about their lives. People range from a variety of subjects (art, sports, science, activists, women’s rights, entertainment, etc.) and are mostly from the United States.
The 3 x 3 inch cards are numbered for each day of the month so that one new person can be discussed each day and added to a calendar display. Using the cards this way, you have two months of material. Many of the cards can be used as a jumping off point to study more about the person, time period and/or subject matter.
